Mrs. Schantz from Four Oaks NC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready, Set, STEM!

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore various STEM opportunities with audio, visual, and tactile materials. I am building student STEM centers to work on independent skills and explore science topics.

My Students

My students are scientists, mathematicians, authors, singers, and artists. Each student is a unique child with their own personal stories. They walk in each day with a love to learn and a want to be successful at both personal and academic goals.

We are a Title One school with a large student population that addresses all learners in a wonderful, supportive community.

Through local churches, families, and businesses we really are provided support for all our students. We provide many community opportunities that connect us with our students and their families.

My Project

I am requesting HOT DOTS flash cards to be utilized for grades first through fifth grade to work on independent centers for mathematics that target curriculum objectives as well as personal individual education goals. The magnetic wands and force and motion kits will bring tactile opportunities to explore physical and life science concepts. The books will be used for student to engage in topics at a differentiated level.

Building STEM centers to help them build knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math while building independence and rigor!

My students require hands on activities to capture their interest and engage them in the common core topics and individual goals.
